Orange you glad to see me?

Hi,

How are you all doing? Before this shoot, I was wearing these over the knee boots, heard a pop and fell to the ground. Thank God I can walk is what the doctor said so that means it might not be that serious. I am still waiting for my scan results, really praying everything is ok.

In other news, it is Halloween weekend, I don’t celebrate halloween but I love everything that has to do with pumpkins. I got inspired by the orange colour and found this dress. It is getting cold in Calgary now and its going to snow this week, not looking forward to that. On my Instagram page, I have been showing my love for different things apart from fashion and doing this makes me pay more attention to my location venues for my shoots. I finally did a video shoot also and I cannot wait for the video. I saw this dress and love the knot detail and the fabric just made me fall in love.

I am taking over LifeInCalgary’s Instagram page and I have to say I am completely nervous but excited at the same time. This would be my first takeover and will give you access to a life as a fashion blogger. The takeover starts on Monday Oct 30th – Nov 5th 2017. Please support and check it out. I was telling my friend that it is funny how you go after certain things, you get it and you feel so nervous and start asking questions. Are you good enough? She encouraged me and said  you can do anything. So I want to encourage someone today, your dreams should scare you and motivate you to be better. Always give your 110% because you don’t know who is watching.

Check below for outfit details.

My Christmas Countdown 2016: Collaboration with Maju – Part 2

Hi Guys,

4 sleeps left till Christmas 2016. Excited is an understatement, you can tell in my shoot (dancing away).

Velvet is a big trend for Fall Fashion 2016 and many designers can’t seem to get enough of the rich and luxe look. Velvet trends can be seen with Balmain, Givenchy and Stella McCartney during Paris Fashion Week Fall 2016. This fabric is a classic staple and making a BANGING comeback. I remember in the 90s’ when my mum bought me velvet, I dreaded it and now please bring all the velvet I will most definitely wear LOL.

Stylebytoyoc x Stylebyayaba takes on Heineken LFDW 2016 – Day 3

Hi Readers,

Day 3 of LFDW was pretty awesome but my fashion week sister (StylebyAyaba) was unable to attend.

I wore a Fifi Meribe Jumpsuit and was inspired and named after me. I loved the details and got loads of compliments (You can purchase the Toyo Jumpsuit  using my promo code: TOYO10). The upcoming designer definitely impressed me and I cannot wait to show you more from her pieces. My makeup artist decided to go for one of my favourite looks with the signature purple lips and loved it.

Stylebyayaba x Stylebytoyoc takes on Heineken LFDW 2016 – Day 2

Hi Guys,

Day 2 of fashion week is over and I bring you the scoops of my top 5 for the day.

Have you ever been at an event and your shoes snapped? What did you do? I would love to hear from you. Please tell me your story.

Day 1 of LFDW 2016, after getting all dressed up and makeup on fire. After taking pictures, I just felt my legs were really free and checked and there it was my sandals opened. At first, I was shocked and told my fashion week sister, Stylebyayaba to help me. I wanted to faint (lol). Thank God for having a friend that’s a designer, she quickly ran to the car to get me needle and thread and fixed it. After that, the show continued.

Lesson learnt: Ladies always have at least 2 pairs of shoes when you are going for an event. Just in case (lol)

Back to Day 2, I wore an Ayaba piece and loved the clash of the patterns and Stephanie Ani didn’t disappoint with my makeup. My hair was laid by Tasala and I loved the bun and left the front pinned up.
